With Leopard My Nokia E71 and N95 some times tether correctly and often it does not work. It Connects and then suddenly Disconnects. The status in top bar continue to display Disconnecting…. until I boot it.
In the event of emergency when I wanted to connect my Mac OS X (Leopard) with Nokia to browser internet or check my emails, it often does not work.
So here is the simple solution:
As Leopard Default Nokia 3G/GPRS script does not work for me. It has problems. You need to download Ross Barkman’s Script from his site. Just scroll down to Nokia Section and download Nokia 3G (EDGE/UMTS) Script or click this link to download. Copy the script whole folder into your RootDrive>>Library>>Modem Scripts Folder.
Just pair you Nokia as usually you do from Bluetooth Icon in the top. Follow the instructions in Wizard and check both isync and use as a modem checkboxes.
When wizard finishes goto System Preferences>> Network >> Bluetooth (Select from Left).
Click on Advance. Click on Modem and then Select Vendor as Other.
In Model Select Nokia 3G CID1 script
Dial Mode should be Ignore Dial tone when dialing
Leave the all other settings as it is. Click OK to return to previous screen.
In telephone type your APN. I use warid. Also remember to put APN in your mobile Phone (Tools>>Settings>>Connection>>Packetdata>>Accesspoint). You can also check this site for Access Point Name.
Also check “show modem status in menu bar” and click apply.
Now you can connect with your mobile internet by clicking on telephone icon on top. No more problems for me.
